is sitting just to the west of washington state. and all these storms are streaming in right into northern california. and we are looking at moderate rain at this time across northern california into southwestern oregon and also up in the seattle and the coast of washington state. now tomorrow we are actually going to see even heavier rain start to move in. we have already had reports of about 8 to 10 inches of rainfall already from the past few storms we've already seen. but we've also gotten reports of wind gusts up to 60 to more than 80-mile-per-hour. and we're going to see more of the same if not a little more intense as we go into sunday morning. additional rainfall totals on top of the 8 to 10 inches on the ground could be an additional 5 to 6, 7 inches of rainfall out of what we'll see tomorrow morning. we have the series of storms moving into the west coast. then it's a totally different story right in the middle of the country. we're also talking about record-break heat today. down into dallas and also into san antonio where temperatures should get into the upper 70s and lower 80s
lawsuits. >> joey, thank you so much. >> on the case here. >> pleasure, brooke. >> now to washington and wolf blitzer and "the situation room." wolf. >> >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, we're hearing from members of a virginia family that play host to a very unusual house guest today, the president of the united states. a hero of the tea party movement shocks washington by announcing he's about to leave the united states senate. senator jim demint joins us live this hour. we'll talk about his decision and new job. and syria's civil war is in a very dangerous perhaps decisive tipping point right now. can the world prevent bashar al assad from using chemical weapons against his own people? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with president obama taking his battle to extend tax cuts for the middle class into the heart of the middle class suburb today. he visited a family just outside washington, d.c., using their story to dramatize what will happen in just 26 days if he and congress can't make a deal on the so-called fiscal cliff. a source of great

term the best way to break washington stalemates, rally the public to their cause. here's how the president put it to cbs news. >> so getting out of this town, spending more time with the american people, listening to them and also then being in a conversation with them about where do we go together as a country, i need to do a better job of that in my second term. >> better job of explaining? >> well, explaining, but also inspiring. >> reporter: wolf, when it comes to a deal on averting the fiscal cliff, negotiations are on deep freeze. from the white house's perspective, they're not going to budge until house republicans come around to the view that tax rates on the wealthiest have to go up. but you know house republicans don't want to agree to any kind of deal that includes that. so right now it's a blinking contest. of course, the white house thinks it's one they'll ultimately win, because in the new year tax rates automatically go up. >> and there could be a recession once again if we go into that fiscal cliff. how worried are officials over at the white house that the pr
good. >> yep. >> maine, washington state approved same-sex marriage, it's already legal in d.c. and six other states. >>> let's turn to the weather. face it, it's affecting a huge chunk of the nation right now. >> there's a lot of snow out there. in fact, snow currently covers more than half of the lower 48 states and unfortunately for some people, the storm's not over yet. let's bring in meteorologist bonnie schneider. what's going to happen today? >> alison and christi, looking at a brand new storm system that will give another one-two punch to areas covered with snow. you mentioned the snow cover. we have almost 65% of the country covered with snow at this time. look how far south. into northern louisiana. well, unfortunately -- or fortunately if you're off and looking for more snow -- you're going to get it. look at what's happening. the snow stretches from ohio all the way to the northeast are and to the south heavy thunderstorms through eastern sections of north carolina. as this energy works its way offshore, we'll be watching for the energy to travel from the midwest further off
optimism for a deal seems to be fading. steve is live in washington with more. >> reporter: one month away from that so-called fiscal cliff. there appears to be very little movement toward any kind of deal. president obama is using the bully-pulpit to appeal to the american people to push for immediate action to push the tax cuts for everybody except for those earning more than $250,000 a year. in his saturday address, he stressed the urgency of the situation. >> if congress does nothing, every family will see their income taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. a typical middle-class family of four will see income taxes rise by $2200. we can't let that happen. a families can't afford it and neither can our economy. >> reporter: republicans led by house speaker john boehner says he should quit campaigning and take care of the business at hand. republicans say they are willing to consider raising more revenue but they want to see spending cuts to go along with it. >> we need to hear they are willing to make spending cuts now, not promises of spending cuts sometime if the fu

stepped down. i've been in washington for 30 years. i understand the attack game. but she was attacked for her qualifications and she was bludgeoned over benghazi before we have any information that's going to come from ambassador pickerring. i thought it was unfair and mean spirited. this is the old boys network. you can tell i don't like it. susan is more than qualified to hold the position. i wish the president would have gone forward and women like myself and perhaps some good men like david would have found reasons to support her. i understand there's a partisan issue with this but this is a very well qualified woman and she should have had the job. >> so you're saying he should have fought for her? >> absolutely. >> does this mean that the benghazi story is something that he wants to put away, so embarrassing that he wants to put to bed? maybe there is some kind of understanding that if she steps off the stage, she books the blood sacrifice and guess to some other job, now there are fewer questions asked because something went terribly wrong. four people are dead and -- >> you he

council permanent member who deseptember ily seems to sell one thing to washington and yet another to pyongyang. press articles hail the fact that china in anticipation of the recent launch had begun inspecting cargo on north korean ships in search of contraband. the question this raises is why has chi gnat not been inspecting north korean ships since 2006 as called for in a u.n. resolution, reinforced by another resolution in 2009. if u.n. member states would only enforce the sanctions currently on the books, north korea would be unable to ignore the swer national community and the civilized world. the time for coordinated international action is now. the time, in fact, is long overdue. with that, mr. speakering i reserve the balance of our time. the speaker pro tempore: the squom from florida reserves. the gentleman from california, mr. berman is recognized. mr. berman: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in strong support of h.con.res. 145 as amended and yield myself such time as i may consume. sproy the gentleman is recognized. mr. berman: i would like to thank the sponsor of this l

the observation of what's going on in washington now, and remember we're fighting whether or not the top marginal rates should be in the low 30s or not. we should roll back the reagan tax cut but i don't believe in miracles. >> eliot: charles, what you're say something critically important. we're all in a way falling prey to this issue as if they're big issues when they're not. the fact that the rate would go from 35 to 39.6, it used to be in the 90s and 70s and 60s, and capital gains will be taxed at below the rate of ordinary income. we're dealing with the most minimal of shifts and changes yet we're being sucked into the notion that this is dramatic. it's not. >> you divided the republicans in three separate camps. i would say that the difference between the theological theocrats and the tee tea party is minimal. to a certain extent the policies that plays out with the theocrats is economics. four republicans have become identity politics. they have no idea what they're talking about. there is plenty of data to show that people don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. it shrinks rather than e
